For the mathces right now, I know it's not looking good but they are up by 4 points

so many putts though missed that were hole winning putts. they seem to be making the ones to halve the holes but they are missing a LOT of putts that can put matches away early

Shows you that the best players in the world don't make every putt every day- even when they have a 6 point lead, which is pretty good IMO.

I think maybe we get jaded sometimes as TV coverage tends to focus on the guys leading a tournament (who are usually have a better than average putting week) and shows replays of the other guys when they sink a long putt or hit a spectacular shot.  With this format, there is more attention played to the guys that are not as hot.

What are those white wrap looking things that the Internationals are wearing on their wrists? Similar to the tape on tennis players? Like an anelgesic?

The morning results turned everything around quickly... interesting.

Early ... all I see are US guys missing short putts or fatting chips  (Hunter) to blow opportunities.

Haven't watched yet today but yesterday or the day before there was a pair (can't remember who) on the international team that each had wrist injuries and had tape on their wrists.

If there are more than that wearing tape on their wrists I don't know...

You can say that again.

I've been downed by a cold so this is good watchin'

They made it more interesting than it needs to be--but that's golf.

The Internationals made some shots today (DeLaet) and we were duffing them.

The Ryder Cup meltdown is casting a long shadow.

Good lord. She almost makes Miley Cyrus look attractive in comparison.

What a revolting sight. Someone needs to eat.

Is she holding her cell phone? Maybe she tweeted before she took it all off? Unexpected nudity is normally pretty bad. This was awesome.

ahhh . .squirrels and naked red-heads . .at least there was something interesting about the 2013 Pres Cup.  I want the Pres Cup to be as compelling as the Ryder Cup .. I really do .. it just isn't, though - at least not for me.

Axing Norman as the captain because he prefers Omega to Rolex is a joke. Sad that he will no longer involved in the tournament.

What are you talking about? I haven't read the entire thread to see if this has been a discussion point. Also, Norman does himself no favors with his inane comments and massive ego.

It IS a joke.  Because there are so many better reasons for dropping him.  Starting with the fact that he lives in his own little whinery.

    • Very highly interested. I should be in full walking shape by then. These places seem otherworldly on insta... The lodging offer is amazingly generous. Thanks Nate...🥇🎁
    • Thanks! I can go. We all put in for our vacations at the beginning of the year (healthcare vacation days can be annoying). I can def get the time off. Just need to know the dates by like February, no hurry on them.
    • MEH. I haven't watched TGC other than golf coverage for decades.
    • I know enough to be dangerously wrong, but also wise enough to know when great advice is given, such as @iacas has given above.  When I am in my practice zone, which is my backyard, I am focusing on one area of my swing - is it impact, is it backswing, is the downswing - what do I want to accomplish/see today.  Great thing is some days I see the mountains move, other days I can't hit my way clear out of a very wet paper sack, but I press  on. Often when doing work at the desk, I am turning my body - working through the torso motions.  My stretches in the say are to replicate what happens in a swing.  Flipping my wrists - I can show you video from about 2 yrs ago and some more recent.  I have gotten better at ball striking, not flipping wrists, but using the the KISS principle - Keep It Simple Son. One part at a time - Erik gave a great reference many moons ago when he spoke of how a classically trained violinist learns a piece (you can insert any instrument here).  At first is seems like disconnected, dissonant notes, yet as they accomplish a piece, they move forward little by little. Then at the end of the day, when it is time to play the notes are fluid and flawless.  This process is about learning it note by note - the YouTube guru's all have a fast cure - the only good one is hard work on A SINGULAR KEY POINT till it is automatic.  Muscle memory is a fantastic thing - it makes things automatic.  Please pardon the ramblings of an old man who had a good day on the course!
    • Golf: $600-900 depending on what courses we decide to play.   Stay is free, no cost for any of the nights at the lake house.   Everything else is kind of unknown at this time.  Am I missing anything? I'd provide a good portion of the food and drinks for the meals at the lake, but we may want to go out a couple nights for dinner, and I am no cook. We do have a grill and a full Kitchen at the Lake that we could use.   Btw, I'd recommend anyone who would be flying in to go through Minneapolis. It's only about 2 hours to the lake vs 3 from Milwaukee.
